I do not like sweet adobo before, but my sisters do, as time passed by I learned to appreciate it, and now it is one of my favorites.
Ingredients for 8-10 servings:
1 kilo pork ( any part that you like)
1/2 cup soy sauce
3/4 cup vinegar
1/4 teaspoon peppercorn ( pamintang buo)
4 cloves garlic
1/4 cup sugar or according to your taste
1 cup water ( add if needed)
1.Saute the garlic then add the pork and saute until the pinkish color is gone.
2. Add the soy sauce and peppercorn then increase the heat making the soy sauce almost dry to enhance the color, then adjust the heat to medium and add the vinegar, cover and let simmer. Do not mix until the vinegar boils so that the texture of the meat will be nice and smooth.
3. Once boiling, add the sugar, mix well then simmer for few minutes until the pork absorbed the flavor and color.
4. Add the water and simmer until the meat is tender. If it is already tender and still has a lot of water increase the heat to make the soup evaporate making the adobo just saucy.
5. Serve it hot.
